Trump supporter Peter Thiel announced he is leaving Facebook (Meta) board after nearly two decades. Thiel will focus on supporting Trump-aligned candidates in the upcoming 2022 election.
Thiel has already announced support for Blake Masters who is running for the US Senate in Arizona. Blake Masters was a venture capitalist at Thiel Capital before announcing his run for senate.
FOX Business Network reported:
Billionaire investor Peter Thiel is leaving the board of Meta, formerly Facebook, after nearly two decades.
It is unclear where Thiel will devote his time and resources, although Bloomberg reports he plans to back Trump’s 2022 agenda.
“It has been a privilege to work with one of the great entrepreneurs of our time. Mark Zuckerberg’s intelligence, energy, and conscientiousness are tremendous. His talents will serve Meta well as he leads the company into a new era” Thiel said.
